Tigers activate Inge from DL, recall lefty Wilk

CBSSports.com wire reports

CHICAGO -- The Detroit Tigers have activated infielder Brandon Inge from the 15-day disabled list Saturday. He is expected to start at second base Sunday.

Inge, who strained his groin during spring training, hit .197 with three homers and 23 RBI in 103 games at third base last year. He will mostly see time at second base this year with Miguel Cabrera moving to third after the signing of Prince Fielder.

Left-handed pitcher Adam Wilk was recalled from Triple-A Toledo to make his first major league start Saturday against the White Sox, in place of injured starter Doug Fister. Wilk compiled a 5.40 earned run average in 13⅓ innings of relief in 2011.

The Twins also claimed outfielder Clete Thomas off waivers from Detroit on Saturday.

The Tigers optioned to Toledo infielder Danny Worth and right-handed reliever Brayan Villarreal.
